For as long as most of us can remember, the Middle East and North Africa have been in political and religious turmoil. However, many Christians in the West know very little about the existence of Arab and other ancient Christian churches in the region, many of which can trace their roots back to biblical times.
On Tuesday, January 7th, International Director for Langham Scholars Dr. Riad Kassis will shed some light on this topic by providing a snapshot of Arab Christianity’s long history and present crisis. He will also expand on the what the Bible has to say about it, how our theological beliefs can help or hinder current conflicts, and if Canadian Christians can play a role in this volatile region.
Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free, although a freewill offering will be taken.
